An Illinois Wesleyan education is one that "deepens the specialized knowledge of a discipline with a comprehensive world view [and] affords the greatest possibilities for realizing individual potential while preparing students for democratic citizenship and life in a global society" (Mission Statement).
The International Office supports this commitment by helping students to study abroad, whether it is for a single semester, a summer term, or a full year. Through this office, IWU students have the opportunity to study in hundreds of locations in over 70 different countries in almost every region of the world. We also have programs suited to just about every discipline offered on campus and for students at various points in their academic career.
As you consider your study abroad options, explore this site and make an appointment to talk with someone in the International Office.
For a brief overview of study abroad at Illinois Wesleyan, please see our Study Abroad Brochure.

The Department of Hispanic Studies at Illinois Wesleyan University is able to offer competitive scholarships to qualified students who carry out Hispanic Studies research off-campus in the U.S. or abroad while enrolled in an IWU-affiliated program.
Two awards are available annually for $1000 and for $250, respectively. Students awarded scholarships commit to documenting and sharing their research during and/or after the off-campus experience.
The award is named for Luis Leal, one of the foremost critics of Mexican, Chicano and Latin American Literature.
Throughout his life, he realized his own individual intellectual potential and fostered that goal in others by living and teaching within a framework of social justice, global citizenship, and respect for diverse communities—values that both the Department of Hispanic Studies and IWU carry in their mission statements.
Deadline: March 1
For more information, download the application or talk with Prof. Christina Isabelli in Hispanic Studies (Buck 014, x3174).
